UNC men's lacrosse's season on final leg after overtime loss, 13-12, No. 6 Syracuse

The North Carolina men’s lacrosse team was on the verge of a much-needed win on Saturday, but instead, it suffered another stinging defeat — this time, a 13-12 overtime loss at No. 6 Syracuse.  The Tar Heels (6-7, 0-3 ACC) held a three-goal advantage with just under four and half minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, but they allowed the Orange (7-4, 4-0 ACC) to score three consecutive goals to force a sudden-death overtime, which they later won on a goal by Brendan Bomberry.
